TAXES: How'd You Do this Year?

We had an exceptionally good year because we qualified for a couple of cash-back tax credits, which will help us completely pay off all our outstanding debts (except housing).

How'd the rest of you fare? Did you end up owing, getting a nice refund, or breaking even?

  • Got a nice refund :) As always :)

  • Big refund - due mainly to various credits that we qualified for this year. Next year we'll still get a refund but only about half, due to my new job that doesn't withhold taxes.

  • Paid an arm and a leg as usual. As a small business owner, I pay quarterly, and they were estimated correctly so I didn't really owe anything back (well, a little), but I paid a lot throughout the year.

  • We are owed a small amount through state- but apparently something went wrong with the paper work so we have to refile. Fun fun. We should probably get on that...
